He has said things along these lines several times. It seems his agent advises him to sign a two or three year deal and then do the Russia thing. Maybe if Russia disappoints in the Olympics he will stay in the NHL until 2018 then have his send off party. Datsyuk really could make that team as a 39 year old and then have a couple last seasons in Russia just something to think about. We are going to have to give him north of 7 million and to a 35+ contract, but I would do it for Datsyuk.
Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of Greenstin.. seems to say a lo of things.. and not back them up. Maybe I'm wrong, just my impression.

But I trust Friedman. One of the best reporters out there. 2-3 more years of Dats would help a lot. I think he could be 50-60 point with near Selke level player in his 40s. But that might be too much to ask. I'd very happy with 2-3 more years. Make it 7+. I'd do it, it would help the kids a lot to learn from him.
